James, as onetime Louisiana governor John McKeithen once said, “Won’t you he’p me?” If you help me get the corporate income tax eliminated, we’ll get it done. I maintain that my proposal for half-FICA taxes on incomes over half a million, out of which you are making a philosophical mountain out of a tiny molehill (in what was an otherwise philosophically pure as virgin snow column!!), will help get the corporate income tax eliminated.
Now, if you DO like the idea of eliminating the corporate income tax, I will gladly tell you how I plan to do it and how you can help. It is eminently doable. I just don’t want to plot my strategy and tactics in public. But give me a call, and I’ll explain how.
What I always have trouble understanding is how so many people focus on tiny (supposed) philosophical transgressions instead of on the huge philosophical benefits that the “transgressions” are designed to accomplish. Certain House leaders never did figure that out during the Gingrich Revolution, and torpedoed all sorts of carefully laid plans to maneuver Clinton into a corner. And today they run around beating their breasts about their own philosophical purity, still without a clue about how they managed to turn a great victory into a loss.
